Suffragette City is about collaboration and pooling our community's collective talents to better everyone involved. Our zine showcases creatives local to our home base in Brooklyn, NY as well as across the country and aboard. Especially as an emerging female or genderqueer artist, having a high quality publication backing up your work shows people that others take your work seriously and that they should too. We are advertisement free and funded entirely by amazing people like you. We're proud to be a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas.
We are made up of artists, writers, and musicians aiming to break up the cis male dominated creative scenes. We produce events booked by women, with female and genderqueer fronted bands, and encourage the venues we work with to hire and staff non cis males for all roles—from working the soundboard, to running the door.
Suffragette City is here to support your work, to offer career advice, to workshop something new, and to provide a platform to get your voice heard.

FOUNDER/Editor in chief
- City rat, born and raised in Hell's Kitchen, NYC
- Art director/graphic designer by day
- Everything DIY, especially punk rock and home cooking
- I sing in a band called NO ICE
- I don’t care what medium I’m working in, as long as I’m being creative
- Of the different creative things I do, I’m probably best at organizing overly ambitious projects and events, and telling people what to do #BOSSLADY
- Building community is the most important thing to me
- I’ve been making zines since highschool, so not much has changed in the past 15 years
